Ask for an update


Respected readers,

When you put yourself out there, thinking that "it won't happen for me", and then it does. Well, that happened and now I'm freaking out cause I need help...Your Help!

I am a proud son to a school teacher and an undergraduate with majors in Automobile. I have been accepted to attend MIT Technology and innovation Bootcamp - Tokyo, Japan. It is a highly selective program and a cohort of only 50 applicants is selected.
Although most of my friends were bought up by both their parents, surprisingly this turned out to be a big motivating factor for me in various different ways. Seeing my mother struggle in order to fulfil my needs made me resolute about being highly successful at an early stage in life. My mother had to stretch a very small income across the rent, bills, her needs, mine and my two elder siblings.

My acceptance letter :


MIT Bootcamp is an opportunity for me to develop crucial professional skills and to expand my understanding of key developments in international affairs. However considering my mother’s financial situation It would be an excruciatingly uphill task for her to fund my tickets, housing and application fee.

A little about me :
  1.  Represented India at Harvard Project For Asian and International Relations- Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
        - I was accepted from a highly selective pool of international applicants to attend HPAIR
        - facilitated discussions and international dialogues on issues prevailing in Asia-Pacific region
        - Winner of the Impact challenge for one of the biggest gaming Conglomerates TENCENT IG 
        - Our idea was awarded as the most innovative and disruptive among 20+ participating teams

2.  Invited to CHINA to continue my research on a scholarship
     - our project focussed on restoring the old Chinese culture among the newer generation
     - MIT Bootcamp will greatly help in my research work and developments in my project

3. Throughout my education, I have been recommended and worked as an intern with :
        1. KTM AG ( Austrian superbike and sportscar manufacturing brand)
        2. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC)
        3 Grade up ( online learning platform with 10 million+ downloads)

  4.  Accepted as a delegate for Asia World Model United Nations- Bangkok, Thailand
        - AWMUN provides a platform for future diplomats to understand international issues and policies
       - Due to financial barriers, I could be a part but I wish to reapply in the future


  5. Served as Head boy and Deputy Head boy in my high school
       - member of literary society at my university
       - In-house project on regenerative braking

MIT is ranked #1 institute globally. Some of the famous alumni of MIT include-  Buzz Aldrin (the second man who walked on Moon), Kofi Annan (Former UN Secretary-General, Nobel Peace Prize awardee), Salman Khan (Founder of Khan Academy) and there’s much more to add, it’s a no-ending list

The only barrier that stands between is $ 9,000 all the money raised through this platform will help me attend MIT Bootcamp

A breakup of the cost :

   Tuition Fee: USD 8,000 (₹5,61,320)
   Air fare (Cheapest option): USD 655 (₹45,958)
   Accommodation for 1 week: USD 345 (₹24,206)  

The total estimated expense to attend MIT Bootcamp would be around ₹6,31,090 ($8,994). I have ₹20,500 ($292) saved as fixed deposit and in my bank account which I earned through competitions and volunteer work.


After my 1:1 interview with a graduate of the MIT program I know this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me. Attending and being a part of this program will open new opportunities, new avenues, new thinking, and an amazing level of energy. Throughout my career, I've been true to my mission of helping everyone around me with their business ideas, personal development, and encouraging them to shoot for their stars. This is my moonshot.
